I Heart Two Little Red Hens
Last week my daughter celebrated her Sacrament of Reconciliation. We celebrated with a family dinner at home and of course I pondered where will I get her cake from. I knew I wanted it to be sweet and special and immediately thought of Two Little Red Hens. This bakery was introduced to me by a dear friend who lived on the Upper East Side and since then, I would never dare order anywhere else. But of course, I had a flickle heart! Over the years, I’ve ventured off to see what other bakeries have to offer. Oh, I did find tasty ones, pretty ones, moist ones, and everything in between. On this occasion, I decided to go back to my old trusty because I knew they would be no guessing involved - I knew I would get a great cake. I ordered a sour cream chocolate cake, with strawberry buttercream and fresh raspberry fruit filling, with strawberry buttercream frosting, covered with pale pink and white flowers. When I picked up the cake I was floored – it was so so so beautiful – they even added crystal sugar on top so that it was sparkly all over. They actually puree fresh fruit in the buttercream – I literally ate the buttercream without the cake it’s just that good. Two Little Red Hens, I will never cheat on you again!
